IBM puts Watson in charge of its SXSW food truck, we taste-test (video)

We know Watson has some Jeopardy skills, but putting IBM’s supercomputer in the kitchen? That’s a little different. Here at SXSW, the company’s set up a “Cognitive Cooking” food truck in partnership with the Institute for Culinary Education (ICE)….

IBM’s Watson uses Jeopardy skills to become House-like medical diagnostician

IBM’s Watson hasn’t been in medical school long, but he’s already wearing two hats. Teaming with the Cleveland Clinic, Big Blue researchers have developed WatsonPaths, a diagnosis and education project, and Watson EMR Assistant, a tool for delving deep into medical records. WatsonPaths is the more …

IBM’s Watson wants to fix America’s doctor shortage

In 2011, IBM’s Watson supercomputer got an unusually public proof-of-concept, competing on Jeopardy! and beating its human competitors hands-down. It was a powerful public win for IBM, and for artificial intelligence at large, but the computer at the center of all that publicity was still basically a prototype. If Watson can do this, IBM wanted to say, imagine what it can do in the real world.

Watson heading to college, honing administrator-pranking algorithms

There comes a time in every young supercomputer’s life when she or he must leave the house. Having actually taken the world of game programs by storm and made appearances at locations like Sloan-Kettering, Citigroup and the Cleveland Center, Watson’s prepared to go to university. The advance three-year education will find a customized variation of IBM’s computer system making its means to New York State’s Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where it will be learning lessons in English and mathematics. Amongst the course load are plans to sharpen Watson’s cognitive skills and capacity to handle data. The residency will likewise provide students a chance to get to work closely with one of the supercomputers that will one day guideline us all.Com mentsVia: PhysOrg

QNX builds in-car speech framework with AT&T’s Watson, knows our true intentions

QNX Porsche

QNX wants to put an end to in-car voice systems that require an awkward-sounding syntax to get the job done. As part of its CES launches, it’s rolling out a framework for its speech recognition technology leaning on AT&T’s Watson engine. By offloading the phrase interpretation to AT&T’s servers, any infotainment system with the framework inside can focus on deciphering the speaker’s intent — letting drivers spend more time navigating or playing music, instead of remembering the necessary magic words. QNX will roll out the voice element as part of its CAR platform at an unspecified point in 2013. We’ll have to wait until car and head-end unit designers implement the platform in tangible hardware, but the new speech system will hopefully lead to more organic-sounding conversations with our cars.

State Dept. Agitator Ahmed Maher, Advising ‘OWS’ Movement: Paul Joseph Watson 2/2

State Department Agitator Advising ‘Occupy’ Movement Ahmed Maher helped lead Egypt’s “Arab Spring” that resulted in military dictatorship Paul Joseph Watson www.infowars.com Wednesday, October 19, 2011 A US government-backed pioneer of the so-called “Arab Spring” in Egypt that eventually resulted in a military dictatorship is now “advising” the Occupy Wall Street protesters in both Washington DC and New York, in another sign that the movement has been subverted by the establishment. US State Department-funded activist Ahmed Maher “is now giving advice to a new group of protesters: the Occupy Wall Street movement,” reports Wired News. Maher has been “corresponding for weeks” with OWS activists, offering them “practical advice from a successful Egyptian revolutionary,” according to the report. If Wired defines replacing a 30 year tyrant with a military dictatorship under which Egyptians enjoy even less freedoms as a “successful” revolution then Maher’s involvement in the ‘Occupy’ movement should be viewed with the utmost suspicion. As Egyptian activist Kareem Amer writes, “Egypt’s Arab Spring has led not to democracy—but to another cruel dictatorship,” under which “The military is killing minorities and imprisoning dissidents.” Of course, you won’t have heard that little fact very often on mainstream television networks because the “Arab Spring” was advertised as an organic mass uprising.

Admit it, you don’t have nearly enough opportunities to talk back to your phone. AT&T is giving you more. The company today announced that it will be offering its Watson real-time speech-to-text software to developers as APIs aimed at a number of different application types — things like web search, question and answer apps and anything that uses AT&T’s U-Verse TV services. A number of additional varieties are also in the works, including gaming and social media. Check out a cheery informational video after the break.

Watson lends a helping hand to cancer research, partners with Memorial Sloan-Kettering

Supercomputers at the forefront of medical practice? The notion is by no means a stretch of the imagination. Yet, research of this kind mostly goes unnoticed — that is, unless the computational wizardry handholding these advancements belongs to Jeopardy!‘s AI king. That’s right, Watson, IBM’s bold-face named powerhouse of silicon wizardry, will be made available as a development tool for oncologists at Memorial Sloan-Kettering to deliver “individualized cancer diagnostic and treatment recommendations” derived from the center’s case note database. Drawing upon that raw processing power, field practitioners will purportedly have access to a wealth of the latest therapeutic advances which would, normally, take too long to spread outside of specialized facilities. The agreement is not the first of its kind, as this time last year IBM had announced a similar partnership with Columbia University, although no further news has come from that union. MSKCC, for its part, does have concrete plans to move its small pilot program forward, with a target launch set for later this year and plans to expand the project’s reach by end of 2013. Jump past the break for the official presser.

Citibank calls on Watson for risk management advice

via dl.dropbox.com

Citibank is exploring potential uses for IBM’s Jeopardy!-beating Watson super computer in the financial sector. Citi is aiming to become the US’ leading digital bank, and is looking to Watson to help analyse risks on loans and investments as well as improve its customer interactions. The system is being trained to process a range of financial and economic data, including SEC filings, prospectuses, and previous loan performances, along with deep content analysis of wider data including news sources and Facebook in order to gauge public opinion and confidence. Citi will then be able to ask Watson to analyse a potential deal and offer advice on the risks involved in any deal and the likelihood of the bank getting a return on its investment.
